Becks has been rumoured to be opting for a career as an actor after life as a professional footballer, with the help of good pal Tom Cruise.

"What film career? I haven’t got one. Never say never, except about that! And that’s the way it’s going to stay," he tells the UK's GQ magazine.

As his team Los Angeles Galaxy prepare to play A-League side Queensland Roar in Brisbane, Beckham spoke out about rumours that his friend Tom Cruise was trying to lure him into Scientology.

He said Cruise is not trying to recruit him into the controversial religion.

"I respect any person's religion but he's never pushed anything on to us. Friends don't do that," the 33-year-old said.

But the world's most famous footballer, who is in talks to make a temporary move to Italian giants AC Milan, did open up about his famous tattos.

He said that all his tattoos have a religious theme.

"I'm not too religious. But I believe there is something out there that looks after you," he told GQ.

It's also reported that Victoria Beckham has been offered a staggering £10 million ($25 million) to shoot a documentary on her husband's move to Milan.

The Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, 72, is keen to show the couple arriving, house-hunting and settling in to the city – similar to the ill-fated programme Victoria Beckham: Coming To America, which she made about her move to the US.

I think it's a good idea for him and Cruise to team up. They could pool their resources and be a half wit.

Er...

Beckham would then be the most well paid, successful* "half-wit" the world has ever seen. (right up there with George W.)

Those cogs may turn a bit more slowly than others, but they turn and very effectively.

Who knows what their goals are? Could be Beckham wanted to be a train driver.

Could be Cruise wanted to be an interesting person.

Who knows?

If you measure the success of someone by their money alone.
Beckham is an average pro player. He's gained "success" by the modeling he's done.
